Will Jessica Biel be the next Wonder Woman? Industry sources say that the former 7th Heaven teen star may wield the Lasso of Truth in an upcoming film version of Justice League of America, and Hollywood was buzzing about the potential casting news on Monday. (Biel’s reps say that it’s way too early to know if a deal will happen; Warner Bros. won’t confirm.) The movie, set to be directed by George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet), is a live-action adaptation of the popular comic book. It will mark the first time Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman appear together on the big screen. Biel last starred in Adam Sandler’s summer comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. She is currently shooting the drama Powder Blue with Forest Whitaker.
